environment. it is difficult, but that's not the way we should approach this. we're looking at common-sense measures. for instance let's ban the high capacity magazines. let's take a look at the loopholes in background checks. let's close them down. and then yes the assault style weapons should not be in civilian life. there are many people on both sides of the aisle who concur with that effort. yes, we should have mental health services. what we ought to be doing is listening to the families. listening to their stories listening to them as to what they believe their responsibility is in terms of moving forward. we are not talking about taking people's guns away. we are talking about some common-sense measures, which we ought to be able to pass in a bipartisan way in this institution. that's the way we need to approach this. it's not that it's a tough fight, that we need to climb a mountain, but we need to move on behalf of these families, and millions of families who have lost loved ones over the years. >> michael: i think that's your energy on this is clearly infectious. the

cap and trade bill as it came through the environment and public works committee. >> bill: before the state of the union, the last time i saw you was at the senate judiciary hearing on guns where there was a witness gun safety, gayle trotter from the independent forum who said every woman needs an ar-15 and let me tell you this story about this one woman in her house and somebody broke in. she had her gun and shot them dead. that's why every woman needs an ar-15. you pointed out there's something wrong with her story. >> she was using a regular shotgun that none of the laws that we were considering would have made illegal. so to the extent she was trying to make a point that the legislation that we were considering would impede a woman's right to defend herself her example didn't prove that point. to the extent she was making a larger rhetorical point that it is a women's rights issue and a women's issue to defend yourself with exotic weaponry, she was able to make that point. >> bill:er are he hadert to to you was you don't understand, you're not a woman. >> she's right about that. >

certainly. but consensus on the environment. belief in science. and this right wing crowd doesn't want to buy into any of this. >> bill: you know what really offends me tonight so there will be parents of the kids who were shot down and killed in newtown, connecticut right. then you're going to have ted nugent who called them props. parents in chicago who have lost their kids. another city. calls them all props. >> a number of people every day that die from gun violence. >> bill: it is just sick for the republicans to allow him to come in. so what are you looking forward to tonight? what are you expecting? >> i was going to talk about the issues you just mentioned. to me, it is always about jobs and the economy. we're still -- we lost -- you've heard me say this far too many times. we lost five million manufacturing jobs from 2000 until 2010. we've gained about 500,000 of them back. that's really the ticket for so many americans the middle class. it is not the only answer. when we see wages decline and we see so many people able to keep up in life, manufacturing jobs, you know, higher tec

been in law enforcement knows it can be a really tough bullying environment for rank and file cops. cops will tell you it's a tough environment. those rigged rules, might sometimes makes right. anybody who's been in law enforcement knows there's a lot of sucking up that the officers have to do. they have to see things they don't agree with and have to deal with that. we'll see if they have some sort of inquiry. it would be good if this were to open up when this current crisis is over, an examination of police departments generally the way they treat their people. the number one complaint of cops in places that i'm aware of is the way they're managed and the way they're treated internally. the public thinks it's about what they do to the cops, but actually, the cops will tell you, they feel mistreated a lot in a lot of police departments. cenk: last question for you. is this still a significant issue within the lapd where they target african-americans or minorities within the force? >> i don't think it's a minority or oh demographic issue at all with the lapd. i think it's every sin

specific programs that the republicans will agree to seems to me almost impossible in this environment. >> john: he has the bully pulpit tomorrow in the brandest stage of his career. what would you do to encourage lawmakers to make public investment. can he brow beat them. >> he can certainly do what he has done since the election. that is really maintain an election posture. continue to go around the country, talking about the importance of jobs, of immigration of gun safety, of all of the issues that he thinks are very important for his second term. and by continuing the campaign, the successful campaign of 2012. the president is in a sense making is very difficult for republicans to maneuver. at the same time obviously there is a kind of a civil war going on in the republican party. that also makes it easier for the president because there is no spokesperson for the republican party to respond. >> john: it has been reported that we're going to see a more confrontational president tomorrow night. is it important for him to say what he's going to do for the economy if they allow the s

cook stoves. >> michael: how big of a threat is this to the environment? how big is this to health? should we all be concerned about this? >> absolutely. we look at how people are using bio mass. it's either wood or charcoal. if people are using wood,s the equivalent of them being exposed to 4,000 cigarettes per day of secondhand smoke. watching 100 episodes of man "mad men." it's actually bankrupting families. a family made spend $500 a year on charcoal. so 30% of their income, and charcoal production is destructive. ten tons of wood to create one ton of charcoal. it's an enormous issue and it's coming it the fore and having hillary clinton the spokesperson, the female pope, if there was such a thing the pope of the cook stove world which has been a push a and boon to the work i've been doing these past several years. >> michael: i wonder if she knows she's the pope of the cook stove. it's helpful for women these cook stoves are why? >> women are the ones cooking in the kitchen, and they often have children on their back. if go to a place like central america they might be cooking

environment for police people. the country is swimming in mental health problems. there's no reason that it's not carried over to the police. this are serious questions now about how somebody like this can get into a police force. in new york city we had a guy who was a cannibal, apparently, getting into the police profession. when we have gun control and giving weapons to people who are fundamentally unsuited. how did he get through the training psychological and what kind of evaluative process was there at an earlier point. >> michael: that is such a compelling point. this brings up so many issues. the name, of course,ly is that it had to get to this point to talk about these issues. it didn't have to get to that point. luis balan oh os. you probably saw a lot of sad friends. we thank you for taking time with "the young turks"." youeugene, thank you. new york your accent makes me home sick for new york. >> it's cold. >> michael: i'm happy where i'm but just hearing you say it makes me happy. we go back to politics and deserving vote. it makes me think of reagan and kennedy making histo

inability to discern and understand how to walk in those kinds of environments, which makes him completely unfit to be the director of central intelligence. stephanie: let me review. instead of being the heads of the c.i.a., he should be executed into treason. we should turn that into a tribunal. >> that's what they peddle. stephanie: ok, let's end with linda harvey from mission america. what's that? >> one of those web radio shows that seems to be popular amongst the righties. >> he would cave in and allow homosexual identity and attraction to be respected and welcomed among their boys. that would mean mobile spiritual and possibly physical corruption, plain and simple. parents and grandparents in our nation are appalled at the irresponsibility of this potential move. the delay is not necessarily a good sign. what the national boy scouts may be hoping for is for more dialogue. in other words ways to pressure local troop leaders and national christian groups threatening to disaffiliate if this new policy goes through. the delay also allows homosexual groups to mount bigger natio
